New, universally accessible line
Longueuil, October 30, 2017 – The Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) is proud to announce the addition, starting November 6, of a new line accessible to people in a wheelchair or using a motorized mobility aid. Line 28, which serves chemin Chambly, City Hall, and the public market in Longueuil, will become the ninth line in the network of universally accessible lines on the RTL’s territory.
“Universal accessibility is a priority for our organization, which is why we work hard every day to make it easier for people with reduced mobility to get around, in order to work toward creating a service that is universally accessible to all our users,” emphasized Colette Éthier, Chairman of the RTL Board of Directors.
Each bus on this new line will have a reserved space for people in a wheelchair or using a motorized mobility aid, such as a three-wheel or four-wheel scooter (which must comply with the maximum allowable dimensions). The driver will deploy an access ramp at the front door to allow these passengers to board. The bus can also be lowered for easy boarding.
When planning your trip, we encourage you to consult our website for the maximum allowable dimensions for wheelchairs, three-wheel and four-wheel scooters. You can also contact our Customer Service department at 450-463-0131.
